Easy solution -

have two nameservers / load balancers, ns1.yourdomain and
ns2.yourdomain, each returning their own IP in response to lookups.

If one goes offline... users will never receive a reply from it with its
IP, and never go to it.

problem with this solution? you need to manually update both domain
servers when you make changes, not just one. This may or may not be an
issue for you.
